Praise:

“Geoffrey Dennis has provided a doorway into the brilliance of the Sefer ha-Bahir, deeply enriching us. Here is a truly significant model of how teachings can communicate over centuries to inform and expand our current vision. I am honored to recommend Rabbi Dennis’s new book to all those desiring to enrich their own spiritual journey.”—Rabbi Ted Falcon, PhD, spiritual counselor and author of A Journey of Awakening: Kabbalistic Meditations on the Tree of Life

“Geoffrey Dennis’s Sefer ha-Bahir is the best translation available of one of the hardest, yet most rewarding, texts of Kabbalah. Forget the pop stuff; this is the real thing, in all its lucidity, opacity, simplicity, and complexity. Best of all, Dennis’s renderings and commentary give the text room both to breathe and to mystify. Highly recommended.”—Rabbi Dr. Jay Michaelson, author of Everything Is God: The Radical Path of Nondual Judaism and director of the Elat Chayyim Meditation Program

“What is constant throughout the book is the sense of Dennis’s love for these early Hebrew teachings . . . He manages to lift the reader to the heights of mesmerized listener without sacrificing the academic/historical context of the teachings. This is a don’t-miss book for anyone seriously interested in the Hebrew roots of modern mysticism.”—Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

“[Dennis] supplies a fluent translation of fifty-one key passages from [Sefer ha-Bahir], complete with annotations, commentary, and introductions that are both accessible to the general reader and insightful.  A masterful achievement.”—Richard S. Sarason, The Deutsch Family Professor of Rabbinics and Liturgy at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
